FATAL ACCIDENT
Child Killed In Runaway Near That Place

LADY SEVERELY INJURED
The Child's Grandmother Took It For a Drive While the Parents Were at the Show

Ontario, Ore., June 7 -- While the rest of the folks were gone to the circus at Weiser yesterday Mrs. R. S. Rutherford, wife of a prominent farmer of this valley, undertook to drive her neighbor, Mrs. John Stone, over to the Hulery farm, about three miles distant to see her son, who was working there, taking Benjamin Rutherford's four-old-son, who had been left with his grandmother for the day along with them.  

In going over, near the Elliott place, about three miles west of Ontario, Mrs. Rutherford driving, Mrs. Stone holding the child, the pony they were driving became frightened at a band of horses passing and shied off into the sagebrush, throwing Mrs. Stone and the baby from the cart.  Mrs. Rutherford soon got the pony under control, picked up Mrs. Stone and the child and drove to Brown's hotel in this city, where a doctor was immediately called.  Mrs. Stone was found to have received a sprained wrist, several bad bruises about the face and head and it is feared serious internal injury.  

The child had received injuries which threw it into spasms from which it died about midnight and before its father and mother had returned from the show.  

With the exception of a severe nervous shock, Mrs. Rutherford, grandmother of the child, was uninjured.
